Peter and Paul Fortress

On the part, "Peter and Paul Fortress" you can see the trumpeters, who by order of Peter I with 11:00 had practiced in public.

It was invented by the king, that the musicians felt themselves shameful.

Young musicians played badly and often made mistakes, for which they immediately were flogged.

This simple learning task has become a daily afternoon concert, ending a 12-hour shot from a cannon, announces silence or flag hour.

 

This tradition has been preserved in our city to this day.

In the winter, Peter the Great used boats and ships, until Neva was't covered with ice, Peter continued driving on winter byier (Boat with a blade for driving on ice).
